US Congress Vote Against Military Action In Syria

EDM number 486 in 2013-14, proposed by Jeremy Corbyn on 05/09/2013.
Categorised under the topics of International politics and government, Middle East and Military operations.

That this House welcomes the announcement of the Prime Minister ruling out UK participation in military action against Syria following the Parliamentary vote of 29 August 2013; believes the Syrian conflict desperately needs a peaceful resolution since military action on the part of the UK or US would result in further death and destruction of innocent lives, increase mistrust between forces in the region and the wider world, and escalate the violence further; values the UK-US relationship which it believes is built on much more than a military alliance; and therefore urges members of the US Congress to reject military action and support an immediate ceasefire and peace talks involving all sides in the Syrian conflict.

This motion has been signed by a total of 43 MPs.
